Though we weren’t able to go home last weekend due to some errands that we had to finish, our stay at my in-laws’ place was fun. Actually, after all the work we had to do, we just spent the rest of the weekend eating, sleeping, watching TV and going out. Not bad, huh. Not only did I get plenty of rest, I was also able to unwind and fix some personal stuff.
On Saturday afternoon, we finally shopped for our baby’s clothes and accessories at 168 Mall in Divisoria. It was very convenient for us because we parked our car at the nearby Lucky Chinatown before heading to 168 Mall. After all the shopping (I said “all” because we did some personal shopping, too!), we had a Chinese merienda at the posh food court of Lucky Chinatown before going home. There was a drizzle outside on our way home so traffic was inevitable, but we were too happy with our purchases to care.
Sunday was family day and we were celebrating my FIL’s 52 years of dedicated service at the company where he works (what a milestone!). After hearing the 9:00 a.m. mass at St. Jude Shrine, we headed for the newly-opened Robinsons Magnolia at Gilmore in Quezon City. We got some cute items from the Saizen store there, grabbed some lunch from Adobo Connection at the mall’s spacious and well-lit food court, and for desserts, my husband’s family had some “reminiscing time” at the newly reinstated Magnolia Flavor House (it was known as the Original Magnolia Ice Cream House before). It was my first time there but I enjoyed it as well, especially now that they also serve gourmet food like the Angus Cheese Burger that I ordered with my Strawberry Shake. Yumminess in every bite of that burger, I tell you. I’ll post a different entry just for that, either here or in my food blog. 🙂
